As a former professional musician, I played for many animal acts on TV, theaters, clubs, and convention centers around the country. We accompanied dogs, seals, and elephants, but the most unpleasant experience was working with bears. In some instances, I didn’t know who was filthier, the bears or the trainers! This was a story I wrote from experience.
